I read somewhere that if you have a phone on contract you don't have to pay to get it unlocked anymore. Is this true & if so why doesn't it apply to PAYG phones?

@steve2cfc That is correct once the minimum contract term has been served its free to unlock. It is also free on payg phones direct from EE

If it's locked to a different network it is down to that network to unlock it.
If you bought it new on EE It will be free if you buy it secondhand it costs £8.99

Those are the rules. More information on unlocking can be found here.

Both are untrue! If the contract phone is still within its contract term it costs £8.99 to unlock but cannot be unlocked within 6 months of being purchased. Once its min. term has expired it is free to unlock provided you bought it directly from EE.
PAYG phones are always free to unlock provided again you bought it directly from EE.
In both cases the free unlock does not apply if you bought the phone from another retailer or it is 2nd. hand. Then it costs £8.99.
